San Antonio artist and owner of FL!GHT Gallery Justin Parr and Lubbock legend Jeff Wheeler have teamed up to celebrate new beginnings: Wheeler's recent relocation to San Antonio and the start of a new partnership between himself and Parr.

On Wednesday, the duo will showcase the talents of a bevy of artists both local and not for a special pop-up entitled "Somewhere Between Money and Love." Held at the yet-to-be-opened South / Side Living and Maker Spaces, the DIY event will feature music and drinks, and will even be powered by a generator.

The stacked slate of artists includes Wheeler and Parr as well as heavy hitters like Daniel Johnston (yes, that Daniel Johnston) and filmmaker Bill Daniel, known for his documentary Who Is Bozo Texino? (2005). Also on deck are experimental photographer Ansen Seale, glass artist Sean Thomas Johnston (a.k.a. Seanball) and the fictional Franklin Ackerley (the nom de guerre under which Wheeler and James Porter collaborate), as well as Amada Miller, Nicholas Frank, Jeremiah Teutsch, Ed Saveedra, Gregorio Mannino, Kimberley Aubuchon and many, many more.

The best part? Everything on the walls is for sale, and many of the artists in the show will be there to party along with you.

Free, 5-9 p.m. Wed, June 19, South Side, 2450 Roosevelt Ave., thesouth-side.com
